This extension is my latest obsession! In the world of headhunting, I'm constantly in touch with people from all corners of the globe through email and messages. Your tool has been a game changer for me. It has seriously improved how I showcase people when presenting them and their profiles to hiring managers which is making a significant difference in breaking down biases during my submissions. The best part... It's become my go to for grammar checking replacing my trusty Grammarly app! Th... Show more

Worst and most useless app ever

I wrote two sentences to test the app. Sentence 1: "I am writing this mail to all the men in the company." Sentence 2: "I am writing this mail to all the women in the company" For the first sentence it underlined "men" in yellow and prompted that it impacts the visibility of marginalized genders. For the second sentence it underlined "women" in green and prompted that it strengthens collaboration and sense of community. I am failing to understand how can this be considered unbiased and accu... Show more

Dear Priyanuj Sharma. We have corrected this. We now underline 'men' and 'women' with the same color, explain that it impacts the visibility of marginalized genders, and provide inclusive alternatives. Thanks for letting us know.

I use it all the time and it helps me a lot with writing more inclusive! It integrates seamlessly in Chrome and it's easy to install and to use :-)

Witty is the solution we have been waiting for so long! These days it is not enough for a top notch business to spell error free. Tonality and hidden bias tell people a lot about the company culture. Ignoring that is, well, kind of ignorant. There is so much to learn and to explore about de-biased language. Thank you for this amazing tool to help us with that!

Witty is targeting such an important topic. It's so easy to fall into bias traps - this tool makes this a thing of the past! 5 stars!

Imagine the magnifying impact of shifting innate language patterns that hold us back from being truly inclusive! Witty is helping us do that. And our favourite feature? The on time micro-learnings offered around words that aren't inclusive, while you type! Way to go Witty Works! We're sharing Witty with everyone we know.

I've only just started using this as an extension, but so far it's proving to be useful. It's handy in your native language, but I think especially helpful if you're writing in a second language - certainly worth giving it a try!

I've been using Witty for a few months now and I'm so thankful to have it. Whether in an email or in a long-form blog post, Witty helps catch things that would go unnoticed otherwise. I've used it primarily in English, but from what I've used of the German version it's been so nice to be able to choose the gender-ending-form that suits best. I have Grammarly installed as well and sometimes the correcting of both apps overlaps each other. I would be so happy when this tool is also available... Show more

It's perfect for my profession! I am a copywriter - in German and English. I have had workshops about inclusive and non-inclusive language and afterwards tried to apply it as much as I could. But it was hardly possible since while writing I am in the flow and, as marketer, often think in stereotypes. So this tool is perfect for me. It integrates easily in my writing flow and helps me to detect when I am thinking in stereotypes. A workshop would never able to do this!
